Login Pw works... then it doesn't. What gives?

My password always works when I boot up the computer. However when I let it sleep and try to log back in, sometimes it will work and at other times I get the red x or wrong password message. What gives?

Could be if CAPS LOCK is on, or if switched to a different keyboard layout or language.
